The franchise, which has allowed users to control the camera via the right analog stick in console SKUs, will offer a touch-based option on the Nintendo 3DS touch screen.
The right side of the touch screen will relay a circle that users can move their thumb across to pitch and angle the in-game camera dynamically, solving the Nintendo 3DS hardware’s lack of a right analog stick.
The option worked very well in the demo included with Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, with the ability to control the camera to view surroundings quickly.
Resident Evil: Revelations is a brand new entry in the Resident Evil franchise. Characters include Chris Redfeild and Jill Valentine. New locations include a cruise ship.
